Laura Redux
17 June 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Although the death of young singer Marcia Strassman has been ruled a suicide one man is not happy with the verdict. Strassman who was a former heroin addict wrote Chief Ironside a fan letter saying that he could beat paralysis just as she beat addiction. No woman who wanted so much to live could possibly have jumped off the Golden Gate Bridge, she had to be given a push.

This episode bears more than a passing resemblance to the classic Otto Preminger film Laura as Raymond Burr has a Dana Andrews like fascination with the dead young singer. While he makes believers of his staff, Burr takes us through a glimpse of the people in Strassman's immediate world. One of them is most definitely a killer.

Though the resemblance to Laura is plain the story is definitely one of the best Ironside episodes I've seen.
